Default quill lose due to quilling or mites?

hi all! My poor pete has confirmed mites and is on revolution but since he's also only 16 weeks old he's also quilling... I can see the new quills growing in but lately he's been losing a butt load of quills! He went to the vet a week ago and that's when he started the mite treatment. Last night I cleaned out the quills from the night before and then this morning I counted 58 new fallen quills! They don't have any skin or anything attached to the follicle like I've seen in pictures of quills lost because of mites...
Should I call the vet?

He'll probably continue losing quills for a bit, both due to mites and quilling. If he's growing new ones back in, that's a great sign. It'll also take another one or two doses to completely get rid of the mites, and it'll take some time for him to slow down on losing and such. I wouldn't worry too much just yet.

thank you so much for your response, it's reassuring to hear from you not to worry yet. only the baby quills are falling out so i take that as a good sign. i'll let you guys know if he seems to be getting worse!
